Description

In this generation-defining self-help guide, a superstar blogger cuts through the crap to show us how to stop trying to be positive all the time so that we can truly become better, happier people. 

For decades we've been told that positive thinking is the key to a happy, rich life. "F*ck positivity," Mark Manson says. "Let's be honest, shit is f*cked, and we have to live with it." In his wildly popular Internet blog, Manson doesn't sugarcoat or equivocate. He tells it like it is - a dose of raw, refreshing, honest truth that is sorely lacking today. The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck is his antidote to the coddling, let's-all-feel-good mind-set that has infected modern society and spoiled a generation, rewarding them with gold medals just for showing up. 

Manson makes the argument, backed by both academic research and well-timed poop jokes, that improving our lives hinges not on our ability to turn lemons into lemonade but on learning to stomach lemons better. Human beings are flawed and limited - "not everybody can be extraordinary; there are winners and losers in society, and some of it is not fair or your fault". Manson advises us to get to know our limitations and accept them. Once we embrace our fears, faults, and uncertainties, once we stop running and avoiding and start confronting painful truths, we can begin to find the courage, perseverance, honesty, responsibility, curiosity, and forgiveness we seek. 

There are only so many things we can give a f*ck about, so we need to figure out which ones really matter, Manson makes clear. While money is nice, caring about what you do with your life is better, because true wealth is about experience. A much-needed grab-you-by-the-shoulders-and-look-you-in-the-eye moment of real talk, filled with entertaining stories and profane, ruthless humor, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck is a refreshing slap for a generation to help them lead contented, grounded lives.

Point Made in First Half Hour....

He made his point, in the first half hour, then beat it to death for the rest of the time. I will try to return it...not worth it, once you get past the catchy title.

It’s a self help book with f#ck in the title

It’s exactly what you likely expect, and that’s a good thing. The language doesn’t let up terribly throughout, but the perspective is interesting and useful. Well worth checking out.

After reading this book I decided that I didn’t give a F* About it. There isn’t enough material for a chapter, never mind a book.

reader thinks he's a voice actor, but he's not.

the guy who reads this gets all breathy and dramatic when poorly imitating people he is quoting, but the content of the book is worth the poor performance.

Listen to chapters 1, 2 and 9.

Mostly mediocre, beginning and ending are fantastic. The rest is mostly rambling and doesn't elaborate much on the main points.
It was definitely worth listening to.
Great narrator.

Vraiment intéressant, fait beaucoup réfléchir!

J’ai adoré écouter ce livre! J’ai fait plusieurs prises de conscience intéressantes. Je vais le réécouter dans quelques mois pour me ré-enligner! J’ai trouvé l’écoute très captivante aussi, l’auteur donne plein d’exemples pertinents pour illustrer ses propos. Je me sens plus relax après cette écoute et j’essaie de choisir plus librement ce qui mérite mon attention et mon énergie. Je le recommande à qui veut travailler son lâcher prise!

blabla book telling stories

the first chapter has the most numerous use I've ever heard of the f word for no reason. one in each sentence.
then the other chapters are a set of stories where the author tried to make them look deep but they are very silly.
Don't waste your time on this book, many better books exist for you..

incroyablement bon

J'ai adoré le livre. L'auteur donne les clés du détachement sans fioritures par des récits et histoires en exemple.
Le lecteur est très bon et personnifie différemment ces personnages. les montées et descentes de tons donnent une dimensions au bouquin. very good. thanks !

Bonne réflexion

donne de tres bons éléments sur lesquels réfléchir. permet de se remettre en question sur des points importants. confirme les autres best sellers (les 7 habitudes) sur l importance du choix de nos valeurs et de vivre en adequation avec celles ci. ecoute en anglais pas trop difficile car le lecteur articule bien et ne parle pas chewing gum

A book for 20-somethings, but not me

I think The Subtle Art... might have had more impact upon me if I was 20-something instead of 59-years-old. The language isn't really an issue (it just becomes another word that doesn't even seem to have much meaning); it's more that Manson is repetitive and doesn't offer anything original that most people haven't learned for themselves in a few decades of experience. For me, the same ideas are expressed much more elegantly, cogently, and thoroughly in The Antidote: Happiness for People Who Can't Stand Positive Thinking by Oliver Burkeman.

The author doesn't give a 'F*ck' about your time

I think their is some merit to the ideas of Mark Manson, but they do not give enough content for a whole book, which was rather a waste of time. The first parts of the book were interesting, but later on it was just dragging on and on with no real content. Most of the writing is " I think" rather than "I know" - there are rarely examples or evidence. It's like a living-room chat with a friend.
You could probably sum this book up in a 20 min TED talk without losing anything that matters...

AKA common sense, and buddhism reframed

Is there anything you would change about this book?

No

Would you recommend The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck to your friends? Why or why not?

Not really, most are smarter than that

What aspect of Roger Wayne’s performance would you have changed?

He was the best part about the book

Did The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck inspire you to do anything?

It inspired me to disconnect from my Social Media

Any additional comments?

This is really basic, simple shit. I can imagine if you have no familiarity with the basic principles of Buddhism and Taoism, you might dig this. Its basic philosophy rephrased with significantly more uses of the word Fuck.

Trite

Using the F* word does not turn trite and obvious cliches into insights. If you like being shouted at by someone who thinks he’s smarter than you are, you might like this book .

Didn't find value in the content

I feel like the book assumes the reader is a pessimistic looser. I constantly found myself getting pat on the back to tell me life doesn't have to be that bad. I'm my case I'm really optimistic and I didn't find value for me in this book . This book however could be a really good read for people that see the glass half empty

Take an intro to philosophy class instead...read Plato...something with depth. This book is watered down bs...not worth the time or money.

NGAF - Not as simple as it sounds

Part of me bought this book because I thought it was funny and quirky, part of me bought it because I was sick of giving a f*^k about so many little things that ate up my day, I didn't have any energy for the things that really mattered.

This book isn't about throwing everything to the wind and turning in to a useless blob. It's about giving f^*ks where f^*ks deserve to be given, placing your f^*ks where they're going to do you good instead of drag you down. I highly recommend it, but if you pass on it, I really don't give a f^*k.

Targets 20-somethings

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Probably not. It has an interesting premise, and a lot of the points the author makes are useful and logical, but as a 34-year-old woman, I found it hard to relate to a lot of what the author said. It seems he's garnered most of his wisdom from years of partying and traveling. Both of those are things I haven't done extensively and don't really do now. The principles still hold true, but I probably didn't need a whole book to learn them. I think a simple blog post would do.

Which character – as performed by Roger Wayne – was your favorite?

I really liked the narrator. Even when the book became repetitive, I was able to pay attention to him, which is saying something for me.
